Is there such a thing as a dc adapter for parallax servo controller?

RadioShack has these hobby power leads adaptaplug ...http://www.radioshack.com/product.asp?catalog_name=CTLG&product_id=273-1742

Should I get 6v 800mA or 6v 1.8A dc adapter?

So basically I'm wondering if it is safe. It'll probably save me a bunch on batteries. blush.gif

    Hello,

    Either of the two supplies will work just fine for 2-4 servos.· Each servo can pull up to 500mA, if you are going to use more than 4 servos you need a lager power supply as in more amps.
